Protection contre les virus et les menaces avec Proofpoint

Practitioners Update: Free COVID-19 Related IDS Rules

Proofpoint Threat Research shows Threat Actors are using coronavirus themed lures to exploit human vulnerabilities.  Along with providing Meta for free to customers through September, we are also providing a set of IDS rules to detect COVID-19 related threats in our community / open source offering ETOpen.

Proofpoint maintains and analyzes an ever-growing corpus of malware and phishing URLs which is updated continuously.  The network traffic that is generated from these URLs is run against the Emerging Threats PRO Ruleset. By analyzing this traffic, we can associate which Emerging Threats signatures alert on phishing activity with COVID-19 related content.

To help the security community in this difficult time, Proofpoint is providing free cybersecurity resources for Suricata or SNORT. We are migrating all ETPro rules with COVID related threats to ET OPEN. To date, Proofpoint has identified 42 signatures in the ETPro Ruleset and have moved these free cyber security resources signatures over to our free ETOpen Rulesets.

You can download these rules and the entire ETOpen Ruleset for Suricata or SNORT sensors by following the link listed below:
